What is SSL?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a security technology that is commonly used to secure server to browser transactions. This generally includes the securing of any information passed by a browser (such as a customer's credit card number or password) to a webserver (such as an online store "paw.com.au"). SSL protects data submitted over the Internet from being intercepted and viewed by unintended recipients.

Whenever a browser connects to a webserver (website) over https:// - this signifies that the communication will be encrypted and secure. A SSL Certificate is installed onto the paw.com.au webserver and ultimately lets customers know that our site is secure.

How does a customer know if PAW.com.au is using SSL?

When a customer connects to paw.com.au and starts to process an order, they will see that the http:// changes to https:// and also a small gold padlock will appear in their browser, This allows them to know that paw.com.au is using SSL. e.g.

How does a customer know if PAW.com.au is using SSL?

When a customer connects to paw.com.au and starts to process an order, they will see that the http:// changes to https:// and also a small gold padlock will appear in their browser, This allows them to know that paw.com.au is using SSL.

When the customers order is processed the browsers HTTPS will then encrypt it with a 128bit encryption method. Generally two strengths of SSL certificate are advertised - 40 bit & 128 bit. A 128 bit key is computationally unfeasible to crack (All banking infrastructures use 128 bit encryption.) At paw.com.au we use the highest encryption method for the security of our customers.

To find out what encryption method is used by a website the user can roll over the the little gold lock in the bottom right corner.

What does HTTPS stand for?

HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol over Secure Socket Layer, or HTTP over SSL) is a Web protocol developed by Netscape and built into its browser that encrypts and decrypts user page requests as well as the pages that are returned by the Web server.
